Patch to fix Python 2 dependency (deleted)

Description Iryna Shcherbina 2017-02-16 14:02:28 UTC
This package started to require Python 2 starting version 1.5-5 :

$ dnf repoquery --disablerepo=* --enablerepo=rawhide --requires gerrymander

Except in very special circumstances, there is no need for one package
to drag in both Python stacks. Usually, this is a packaging error: in this case the Python 3 executable does not override the Python 2 one during installation.

Please remove the stray dependency. There is a section on %install in  in the Python RPM Porting Guide [0] which covers this issue.

It's ok to do this in Rawhide only, however, it would be greatly
appreciated if you could push it to Fedora 25 as well.

If anything is unclear, or if you need any kind of assistance, you can
ask on IRC (#fedora-python on Freenode), or reply here. We'll be happy
to help investigating or fixing this issue!
